Loretta Gould

Loretta Gould is a Mi'kmaw quilter and painter who loves bright, beautiful colours. A self-taught artist, she grew up in Waycobah First Nation where she later raised five children of her own. She began making a living through her art quilts but, when her sewing machine broke in 2013, she decided to try her hand at painting. She's been painting ever since. Loretta's dream is to share her art with the world. For her, art is a way to get her spiritual feelings on canvas.
